2. Introductions NC DELTA Empowerment Evaluation Team Beth Moracco Tina Peterson Kathryn Andersen Clark

3. What We Will Cover Today? Introduction of EE Team: Beth, Christina and Kathryn Introduction to Empowerment Evaluation (EE) ~BREAK~ Introduction to Getting to Outcomes (GTO) Tying it all together: How we will use EE and GTO at the state level Discussion/Questions

4. What is evaluation?

5. What is Empowerment Evaluation? Evaluation “system” that aims to increase probability of success by: Providing stakeholders with tools for planning, implementation and self-evaluation; and Integrating evaluation into program/organizational needs assessment, planning, and implementation

6. Integrated Vision of Evaluation

7. EE vs. “Traditional” Evaluation Traditional (Proving) Done to you Value-free Conducted by outsider Focused on what happened Empowerment (Improving) Done with you Stated value(s) Conducted by participants Focused on what is happening now

8. Principles of Empowerment Evaluation Improvement Community Ownership Inclusion Democratic Participation Social Justice Evidence-based Practice Community Knowledge Capacity Building Organizational Learning Accountability

9. Principles of EE: Improvement Goal of evaluation is to improve process and performance Use data to inform decision-making Monitor change over time

10. Principles of EE: Community Ownership Stakeholders have control over the evaluation process Evaluator is coach/facilitator; offers tools, training, technical assistance re needs assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation Stakeholders take responsibility for oversight and direction of the evaluation

11. Principles of EE: Inclusion Stakeholders should represent communities they serve EE facilitates direct participation by all stakeholders

12. Principles of EE: Democratic Participation Stakeholders and EE commit to democratic participation in decision-making Facilitate environment where all voices equally valued, shared, and heard EE monitors participation and decision-making and provides feedback

13. Principles of EE: Social Justice Think through potential implications of evaluation results; aim is to make a difference toward the larger social good Base programmatic decisions on a social justice framework Work should facilitate social change and address social inequities

14. Principles of Empowerment Evaluation: Community Knowledge Respect and value knowledge that lies within the organization/community Use and validate community knowledge Combine local/state-specific knowledge with evidence-based strategies

15. Principles of Empowerment Evaluation: Evidence-Based Strategies Identify evidence-based strategies that can lead to program/organization’s goals Adapt (with care!) evidence-based strategies within community context

16. Principles of EE: Capacity Building Empowerment Evaluator provides training and TA for self-evaluation Stakeholders guide training/TA needs Empowerment Evaluator works self out of a job

17. Principles of Empowerment Evaluation: Organizational Learning Empowerment Evaluator and stakeholders foster a culture of learning Transparent decision-making Stakeholders involved in interpretation of results and forming recommendations

18. Principles of Empowerment Evaluation: Accountability Use appropriate tools, measures and methods Identify reasons that implementation differed from plan (process) Identify reasons why desired outcomes were and were not reached (outcome)

19. Role of Empowerment Evaluator in NC DELTA Work with NC DELTA Coordinator and ED to Build IPV Prevention Capacity in: NCCADV State Steering Committee Local CCRs

20. State IPV Prevention Plan Develop Using Getting To Outcomes Coordinated by NC Delta Coordinator Facilitated by EE Team Authored by State Steering Committee Includes local plans as Appendix Due June 2008

21. Role of Empowerment Evaluator in the NC DELTA State Steering Committee Support SSC to create state-level: Intimate Partner Violence Prevention Plan (June 2008) Increase state and local capacity re evidence-based planning and evaluation Leave infrastructure of training materials, databases, report templates, data collection protocols, etc.

24. Introduction to Getting to Outcomes (GTO)

25. Getting To Outcomes (GTO) GTO is a 10-step framework for planning, implementation and evaluation Includes tools/worksheets Manual under development for IPV and SV Designed to be used as a tool or framework for Empowerment Evaluation

26. State-Level Use of GTO State Steering committee uses GTO to develop statewide IPV Prevention Plan NCCADV team uses GTO to develop statewide IPV Progress Report EE team provides coaching, training/TA on GTO

27. 10 Steps of GTO Needs and Resources Assessment Setting Goals, Populations and Desired Outcomes Evidence-based Strategies Fit Capacity Plan Implementation with Process Evaluation Outcome evaluation Continuous Quality Improvement Sustainability

28. Applying GTO Needs and Resources Assessment What are the underlying needs and conditions that must be addressed to prevent IPV capacity? What resources are available to help prevent IPV ? Goal, Populations and Desired Outcomes What are the state’s goals and desired outcomes (objectives) for IPV prevention in NC? What priority populations) does the state want to reach?

29. Applying GTO 3. Evidence-based Strategies: What evidence-based strategy(s) will help us achieve our goals? 4. Fit: How will the chosen strategies to build IPV prevention capacity “fit” within the context of IPV prevention in North Carolina? 5. Capacity What capacities does the state need to implement the chosen strategy(ies)? Evidenced-based strategies for NCCADV – getting organizational buy-in for preventionEvidenced-based strategies for NCCADV – getting organizational buy-in for prevention

30. Applying GTO Plan: What is the specific plan to implement the strategy(ies) for IPV prevention? Implementation: How will the quality of implementation of the IPV Prevention Strategy(s) be assessed (i.e. fidelity)?

31. Applying GTO Outcomes: What were the results of the strategy(s) to prevent IPV? Did we meet our goals and desired outcomes? Quality: How will the state improve the IPV Prevention strategy(s) over time? (CQI) Sustainability: If the strategy is successful, how will it be sustained?

32. Focus on GTO Step 1 GTO Step 1: State Level IPV Needs and Resource Assessment (4-6 months) Definition: systematic process of gathering and critically interpreting information about IPV; and the resources available to address that problem within the state Goal: Comprehensive picture of IPV in North Carolina, including differences in needs and resources among regions and populations

33. Focus on GTO Step 1 GTO Step 1: State Level IPV Needs and Resource Assessment (4-6 months) Activities: Establish a work group or committee Define: IPV Geographic and demographic areas of interest Develop Needs and Resource Assessment Workplan Identify existing IPV data sources (archival/secondary data) Understand value and limitations of various data sources Identify data/information gaps Determine which groups have greatest “risk” of IPV Identify protective factors for IPV Consider primary data collection

34. Focus on GTO Step 1 GTO Step 1: State Level IPV Needs and Resource Assessment (4-6 months) Product: State IPV Profile Information about: Sociodemographic factors Description of IPV funding streams IPV in NC: Magnitude Risk and Protective Factors Separate IPV profiles by region or county? IPV Prevention Resources

35. Focus on GTO Step 2 GTO Step 2: Goals, Desired Outcomes and Priority Populations Definition: Goals are broad statements that describe the kind of change you want to see as a result of your work. Outcomes (objectives) are specific, measurable statements that let you know when you have reached your goals.

36. Focus on GTO Step 2 GTO Step 2: Goals, Desired Outcomes and Priority Populations Activities: Decide what you want to change Should be based on data from Step 1 Decide what level of social ecology to address Identify risk factors to reduce Identify protective factors to promote Identify indicators for each outcome What will change Who will change When will it change By how much will it change How will the change be measured

37. Where do we go from here? EE Facilitation “Menu” Identification of SSC TA needs Formation of sub-committees Develop goals, timelines, workplans Begin Working on GTO Step 1 (and 2?)
